Eating out in Derby



  • MidCon is a board-games convention held in the comfort of a top class hotel in Derby, UK, which is organised by a group of independent amateur board games enthusiasts. MidCon 2016 will be the 37th and will take place from November 11 to November 13 at the Hallmark Hotel, Derby

  • The convention is open for bookings for 2016. If you are not already on the MidCon mailing list and wish to be so, send an e-mail via the Queries link in the left hand margin.

  • MidCon provides a very comfortable setting to play your favourite board games and to try out new ones; to meet old friends and find new ones. The emphasis is on relaxation and enjoyment. With typically over 230 people present, MidCon is big enough to provide the variety you want, but small enough to retain the personal touch.
